Embrace the power of the Sacred Masks in iSoftBet’s latest release, Masks of Fortune Megaways!

iSoftBet has got their hands on some Sacred Masks that are waiting to take you on an epic adventure and reward you with plenty of riches in the form of Modifiers and Free Spins.

Masks of Fortune Megaways is set in beautiful Africa, where the temperature is always hot and ferocious animals roam free in the wilderness. It’s here that you will see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat, aiding you toward big wins.

iSoftBet has quite the portfolio of Hold & Win slots, and although a popular mechanic, it’s nice to see iSoftBet lean towards something different even if it is trading an overused mechanic for another.

Sacred Mask Feature

The Sacred Mask feature can trigger in both the base game and Free Spins round. During the base game, the Sacred Mask can unleash up to 4 special Modifiers; Max Megaways, Wilds, Bonus Symbols, and Mystery symbols.

The Sacred Mask feature can trigger a tease at random and does not guarantee a Modifier.

Masks of Fortune Megaways Free Spins

Landing 4, 5, or 6 Scatters across the reels during the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 8, 10, and 12 Free Spins respectively.

Alternatively, any Wild symbol that lands in the Sliding Reel has the ability to trigger Free Spins, awarding one of the above number of Free Spins.

During Free Spins, an Unlimited Win Multiplier is active, starting at x1. After each Cascade, the Win Multiplier will increase by +x1. The new Multiplier does not reset between Free Spins and is applied to all future wins during this round.

Masks of Fortune Megaways: Our Verdict

Masks of Fortune Megaways is another Megways slot that proves once again that fancy innovation or unique themes are not necessarily key when creating a promising and enticing slot, just so long as gameplay is up to scratch.

Masks of Fortune Megaways doesn’t stand out for its theme, although it paints a beautiful picture, it’s more about what’s going on behind the scenes which doesn’t disappoint.

Mystery symbols are the norm in Megaways slots. Some may find this feature a little tedious, but throwing them into the mix only boosts the game’s appeal.

The Sacred Mask feature is where things get really exciting, with up to 4 unique Modifiers that can trigger at random. These features are probably the most promising part of the game for both the base game and Free Spins round, considering the Free Spins round is your typical Unlimited Multiplier round seen in an abundance of Megaways titles.

Tieing it all together in a nice neat bow, iSoftBet has opted for a max win cap of 10,000x. Certain games make us wonder how it’s possible for them to achieve such figures, but the Megaways mechanic, Unlimited Multiplier, and Sacred Masks feature that Masks of Fortune has on offer make this feel much more promising.
